Microsoft Word for iPad Review

leave a comment

My Microsoft Word for iPad review is out , actually as of a couple of days ago.

The best version of Word I’ve used, maybe ever. It sports a very clean interface, has great compatibility with Office for Mac and PC and is a pleasure to use.

Highly recommended of Word is an app you need.

PDFPen for iOS Reviews

leave a comment

My PDFPen for iOS reviews are now up at Macworld.com.

While I like these apps and use them almost everyday, I did find that this version of these apps had some intermittent bugs that occasionally led to PDF editing frustration.

OneNote for Mac and Online Accounting Applications

leave a comment

Microsoft has just released a version of OneNote for the Mac. My first look of the app is available on Macworld.com.

As initial releases of Mac applications go, OneNote is pretty good. Whether it’s ready to replace Evernote as your personal information collection tool remains to be seen, but my initial impression is that it has the potential to do just that.

In other not so newsy news, Macworld has also posted my review of online business accounting applications.
